Big Picture: Pictorial Report Number 26

DVD Copied by Katie Filbert. "THE BIG PICTURE" to cover Virginia township centennial and modern miracles of military science -- For the first story in this pictorial report, the camera frames a picture of Fort Huachuca, Arizona, one of the most modern of all the Army's installations. Here in this desolate country, surrounded by empty desert and mountains, the Army has found an ideal proving ground for newly developed electronic equipment. Viewers will see the testing of an amazing reconnaissance robot, the pilotless plane--the drone; the newly developed radio contained in an infantryman's helmet and used under combat conditions; and the new all-weather flight control--a system of seeing in the dark. Fort Huachuca is a miracle testing ground, where 8,000 men and women are working to find new ways of protecting America. The second story is truly "off beat" for THE BIG PICTURE series. It concerns the farming community of Galax in Southern Virginia. Here is a township on the eve of its Centennial Jubilee volunteering its help through a Chamber of Commerce committee to form an Army Reserve training company that could march in the Centennial parade. It is a warm-hearted story of a people determined to keep American democracy safe. For they know that freedom is everybody's business -- and prove it on THE BIG PICTURE.
